is there a trick for threading ballcups onto turnbucles? or are they going to be a " " regardless?

I put a self tappign screw in the turnbuckle first(with a screwdriver) and then took it out. It makes it much easier

Yes and no. The x-ray screw can't use the same thread coz one is a self tapper and one is a machone thread but it does open the hole to make it easier. Just don't use a self tapper thats too thick.

Use a bolt from your X-Ray kit, and thread it in two to three times. Use some bar soap as a lubricant on the threads, as this will help make it a little easier.

Yeah I hated those shock ends until a friend of mine mentioned the bolt/soap trick. It was still a little tough, but I was going nowhere in the beginning. Hope it helps :-)

I hold the turnbuckle in one hand with the little wrench attached and braced against my finger. Then I screw the end on until it gets too hard to force it with my hands. And finally I grab the end with a set of pliers and finish tightening it down.

I only pre-thread the shock ball ends.

I always put the turnbuckle in a vice, then put a screwdriver through the ball cup hole and turn it.
For me that's the easiest way to make them, it's fast and you don't scratch anything.

a little tip i read was to use your reamer on them, just a little. Then go ahead and put them together. makes adjustment a little easier
